Well, I deliberately saved my weekly reading post for Thursday so that it would be after the [community profile] fan_byproducts reveals and I could post my recs with author names intact, but then I was too tired and never posted, so oops. Now it's Friday.

What are you currently reading?
Bookwise, I'm still reading Hataraku Maou-sama. I'm really enjoying it a lot, but I've hardly been reading much at all, so the progress is slow. I'm about two-thirds of the way done now, so I expect I will still be reading by next week's reading post (though perhaps close to finishing). :p

Ficwise, I'm still going through all the [community profile] fan_byproducts fics. There weren't a ton of fics, but again, slow reading.

What did you recently finish reading?
Mostly Night Vale fics, but also one Attack on Titan?

The Capitol's Punishment (3413 words) by khepria
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Shingeki no Kyojin | Attack on Titan
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings, Graphic Depictions Of Violence, Major Character Death
Characters: Annie Leonhart, Erwin Smith, Hange Zoe, Levi (Shingeki no Kyojin)

Very interesting story about Annie after her capture.

Tamika Flynn: Librarian Hunter (3836 words) by Measured_Words
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Characters: Tamika Flynn, Marcus Vansten
Additional Tags: Librarians, The Night Vale Private Library, Books, Libraries, Hunting, Nudists, Nudity, Teenagers, axes, Privilege, BAMF Tamika
Summary: Marcus Vansten has an unexpected problem at the Night Vale Private Library, but he knows just who to call.

This was so cool! It is pretty much a sequel to [personal profile] thingswithwings's How I Survived My Summer Vacation, by Tamika Flynn, Age 12 3/4, though could be read without that, since it doesn't make any explict references to what actually happened in the library (though I have to assume that if you are interested in reading about Tamika Flynn, you would have read TWW's fic!). Anyway, I really love this idea.

Stars Over Void (1181 words) by Themistoklis
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Tamika Flynn
Summary: On her first day at the station, they tell Tamika that the survival rate for Night Vale Community Radio interns is low.

Another great Tamika fic! In this one she goes on to be an intern at NVCR, which is definitely a future I approve of.

Enter this World (2323 words) by Themistoklis
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Welcome to Night Vale
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: The Angels (Welcome to Night Vale), Old Woman Josie, Cecil (Welcome to Night Vale)
Summary: The angels don't all come here on purpose. Erika's first glimpse of the human world is through the bars of a cage, and she barely manages to make it to Old Woman Josie's for help.

I love the premise! This would be really cool as the start of a longer fic, but it also works very well just on its own. There's so much of Night Vale we only see in glimpses and this fits right in with that.

Also speaking of [community profile] fan_byproducts fics, it turns out my gift fic was written by [personal profile] busaikko! No wonder I liked it so much. :D

What do you think you'll read next?
More Hataraku Maou-sama & more Night Vale fics, it looks like!

What are you currently reading?
Nothing! I suppose I should have quickly started something before this post so that I could have something to say here, but I didn't.

What did you recently finish reading?
Well, I finally read something other than Night Vale fic, because I finished all the Night Vale fic on my phone and have not yet gone to find more. Especially since finding more this time requires wading through AO3, since I've run out of recs.

Recs: 3 Night Vale, 1 Shingeki no Kyojin, 1 Homestuck )

I also finally got caught up on Jump! I had like seven issues to read. ^_^;; I'm enjoying Toriyama Akira's new series, Jaco the Galactic Patrolman. It's typical Toriyama humor, and the art is fantastic. Toriyama's art (Dragon Ball in particular) is one of the things that got me into manga and he's still one of my favorite artists.

I'm also liking the current One Piece storyline more now that the focus is shifting away from Luffy's battles to what's going on with Dressrosa.

What do you think you'll read next?
Really not sure. Could be more fic, could be manga. It's unlikely to be a book, though. That much I feel pretty certain about. :p (Though I suppose I should read at least a few more books before the year is up, since I think I've only read two so far, which is an all-time low.)
